Extech Instruments have released the new RC200 Tweezer Multimeters which permit tweezer style testing of small, SMD components as well as standard electronic and electrical testing using easy to swap test leads.
The Extech RC200 is a small, hand held tool with selectable auto-/manual-ranging used to measure AC/DC voltage, capacitance, resistance, continuity, and diode function in circuit. For one-hand operation, squeeze the tweezers around a surface mount component or test point for automatic component identification and testing. For ease of use, an adjustment dial allows the user to optimize the tweezers' spacing. Unlike similar tweezers-style multimeters, the RC200 Tweezer Multimeters add versatility with tweezer tips that can be removed and swapped with a test leads adaptor for voltage readings up to 600V.
The lightweight, ergonomic RC200 is ideal for users who typically debug PCB's, test onboard components, sort loose SMD components (as small as 0201 case type), and other electrical measurements demanding precision access. The Extech RC200 Tweezer Multimeter also includes swappable test leads that extend the range of electrical and electronic testing applications.
The Extech RC200 Tweezer Multimeters include test leads, SMD tweezers, protective cover, carrying case, and batteries. The meter is Category III rated to 600V and CE approved. Extech RC200 Tweezer Multimeters are available from TRIO Test & Measurement.
